VR developer Fast Travel Games today announced its latest project, called Ghost Signal: A Stellaris Game. The new title, which it co-developed with Windswept Interactive, is an action roguelike set, as the name suggests, in the Stellaris universe. It will launch on March 23rd on the Meta Quest 2. It works with Quest 2’s newly rolled out Hand Tracking 2.0.
According to Fast Travel Games, Ghost Signal follows the adventures of a ship captain on a hunt for the titular signal. Along the way, players will engage in interstellar battles, explore mysterious planets, and encounter aliens and creatures on random maps. The developers announced last year that the game would work with Hand Tracking 2.0, meaning players can control their ships without the use of controllers.
Fast Travel lead game designer Christopher Smith said of the game, “As players take command of the starship Aurora on a journey into the unknown, I really hope they get an action-packed roguelite VR experience like never before. With randomized cards, each playthrough of Ghost Signal: A Stellaris Game is different. Your survival skills will be put to the test and we look forward to seeing what you find and overcome in search of the Ghost Signal.
Ghost Signal isn’t the first game Fast Travel has made using an existing IP address. The studio published Cities VR earlier this year (the Cities series will expand later this year with Cities: Skylines II). In addition to the story, Ghost Signal has daily challenges and leaderboards for users.
